Tripoli, 5 September 2014:
A delegation from the House of Representatives has failed in repeated bids to broker a . . .[restrict]ceasefire between militias fighting in and around Tripoli.
It is being claimed that there have been no less than 26 separate attempts to talk to Libyan Dawn representatives, all of which have been rebuffed.
The group was made up of 13 representatives from the HoR Ceasefire Committee set up on 17 August. House member Sallah Al-Sahbi told the Arabic language newspaper Buwabat Al-Wasat, they had been trying to negotiate the ceasefire and convince Libya Dawn militias to quit the capital.
Sahbi added that they are working together with the preparatory group for the Libyan National Dialogue initiative and some five other groups, including the United Nations, tribal representatives and Libyan city and regional leaders
The very first resolution passed by HoR from Tobruk was the order for a ceasefire on 7 August. [/restrict]
